MFT December Greatest Hits à la mode!

Hey all! It's time for another MFT Greatest Hits group post. For links to all the designers sharing projects today, check Kim's blog at 11am EST. This month we're focusing on the à la modes - an awesome newer line by MFT. This line is illustrated by Amanda Baird who also happens to be Carole's neice.

Although I love all the à la modes (and that's not an exaggeration), my current fave hands down is Miss You a Latte (currently being re-stocked). I paired her with some Basic Grey Jovial papers. I picked the papers specifically because of the small red print that I used to piece the cups. Joanne made me do it (well o.k. I borrowed her genius) - I just love those red Starbucks holiday cups. I stamped her on some X-Press It blending cardstock and used some Hot Fudge and Jellybean Green cardstock.

I paired my coffee toting gal with a slew of Die-namics dies - the new Textile Rectangle die, Hearts a Plenty die, and Let it Snowflake die. I used some MFT felt for the heart and snowflake, and some crochet ribbon as well. The sentiment actually comes from the set Winter in the City - I thought it worked well. The layout is this week's Mojo Monday sketch.

I finished the inside off with a sentiment from Merry & Bright and the Dainty Dots border die.

And just for you - Kim's offering a special!

Christmas Comes Early Promotion
MFT loves to spoil our customers and this week is no exception. Christmas has come early for YOU. From December 7 though December 9, our MFT Santa will be slipping a little something extra into your "stocking". With each order of $25 or more (not including tax or shipping) placed during the promotion period, you will receive a FREE surprise gift with your order. We have a ton of gifts under the tree, and we'll pick one out just for you. It could be a stamp set, ribbon, or other crafty product. It'll be a surprise, so please don't send Santa a list. *wink*

Thanks so much for stopping by!
